Hi everyone, it seems that there seems to be common sentiments on what is happening to Sydney. Am I correct in assuming that Sydney will have "hotzones" with high rise, blue collar jobs, easy transport access and community facilities, these seem to be earmarked as (descending from hottest to coolest): Parramatta, Liverpool, Penrith, Blacktown, Ryde/Macquarie, Bankstown, Chatswood. Going by what I can see happening, Blacktown has always felt like a little Parramatta, Blacktown today feels like Parramatta about 10-15 years ago. Interestingly Blacktown has a swathe of the CBD area that is literally bare land, waiting for development. Blacktown will also have the best overall access to the heaviest growth areas (north west, south west & Parramatta west) out of all the "hotzones". For these reasons industrial/commercial around Blacktown seem very attractive to me. Liverpool seems to be in a long term game but 2nd fastest growing place after Blacktown. I see investing in or around Liverpool as one of the few areas in Sydney that are still viable to invest in today, assuming you're getting land and the location is on point. This is of course, assuming you're playing the long term "buy to sell" game. Penrith strikes me as a bit of a dark horse. The region makes me think of a slightly more bogan sutho shire, but it's gentrifying the most rapidly out of all the future hotzones in my opinion. Its also got some respectable growth and investment being poured in and is the geographical "most west" regional centre in Sydney. The Ryde and Macquarie part of Sydney seem to be already doing well, I see future growth in these areas as stable as well. I wonder how these areas will compare to the 3 aforementioned powerhouses when it comes to potential though. Bankstown is an area with excellent location but the infrastructure around it (in terms of roads) does not look to be improving too much very soon. Its also got some notoriety, and this might hold it back somewhat. Chatswood is remarkably annoying to reach, and the traffic there can be really over the top! I'd like to hear more opinions on Chatswood but I am most certainly not the biggest fan.
